Children Are Inspired!
Thank you for the wonderful author visit yesterday. Both the teachers and the students had very enthusiastic reactions to your presentation. We enjoyed seeing the "fruits of your labor" come alive as you read from Hashem's Candy Store. And you let your "fingers do the talking" in your adorable Let your Fingers Do the Mitzvos. We enjoyed hearing about your behind-the-scenes details beginning with how you get your inspiration (loved seeing your early morning scribbles) to how the books are made to how you work with various illustrators. But most importantly, our children really gained valuable insights from the very important messages conveyed in your stories.
We look forward to reading your next book!

BRACHA GOETZ TALKS ABOUT HER JOURNEY
Bracha Goetz held a roomful of women in her hands. In her quiet voice, Bracha told her story, and everyone was right with her, focused on her words, which were so compelling. On a high track at Harvard with friends of high standing, Bracha held us in rapt attention as she described how she ran through the rain, stomping in puddles with joy and glee because she just realized her path was to abandon that whole life and embark on a more fulfilling journey. Whether telling her story, reading her poetry, or reading the books she wrote for children, Bracha has a message for everyone, and her encouragement and her words have the power to influence people to turn their lives around.
